Welcome to EGamersWorld.
DreamLeague Season 21 group stage matches continue. The International 2023, the last major championship before the Long Convergence, is gaining momentum.
We will talk about the teams of Group B, where BB Team and Gaimin Gladiators will meet in the first round of the second game day. The match should be the centrepiece of the round.
The match promises to be The International heresy, because clubs with big names are fighting. Besides, both teams are motivated to win after the first match day, which ended completely differently: 3-1 for BB Team and 1-3 for Gaimin Gladiators.
Let's see how the match will end and whether there will be a winner who will be able to improve their tournament position.
Gaimin Gladiators form
We open the match with an analysis of the Gaimin Gladiators match form. In this match the team will play the first number one.
On the advantage of GG are indicated and bookmakers. The odds for the victory of the three-time world champions are at around 3.4.
Advantage, frankly speaking, this situation can not be called an advantage. Gaimin Gladiators are ahead only because of their name.
At DPC 2023 Tour 1 WEU Division 1, the team took the top 2, which opened the way for them to The Lima Major 2023. The first Major season of the tournament was a trailblazing triumph for the Gladiators. Gaimin Gladiators won the tournament without losing a single map in the championship play-offs.
The next DPC cycle in the home league ended even worse than the previous one. Then GG lost to tiebreaker for the top 2, but more than compensated for the failure with a performance on the international stage. Even twice.
On the eve of Long Copega DPC 2023: Tour 3, GG took the championship in two international arenas. They won the $1,000,000 DreamLeague S19 and The Berlin Major 2023, defending their status.
In the third round of the domestic league, Gaimin Gladiators were expectedly one of the top contenders to win the league, but failed to get the regional championship. At the end of DPC 2023: WEU Tour 3 GG took 2nd place, but they made it to the Major, and that's the main thing.

There was also DreamLeague Season 20, where in the first group stage GG felt like they played half-heartedly. Nevertheless, they made it to the next stage and then won the grand final.
After winning DreamLeague Season 20, Gaimin Gladiators won another title. This time it was the Major a Champions Cup again. At Bali Major 2023, GG were once again beaten by Team Liquid in the grand finals.
GG had high chances to finish all the big tournaments of the year with victories, but at Riyadh Masters 2023 they were unlucky. In the first round of play-offs "gladiators" fell to the lower play-offs grid, where Ledgeili Talon Esports at the stage of TOP-4 and left the championship.
In the first match of the group stage BB Dacha team met 9 Pandas. One of the best teams in Eastern Europe, and in the whole competitive scene, could not oppose GG. As a result: an easy 2-0 for GG in 50 minutes for two games.
In the next match GG met Beastcoast, who can be called the second contender for the play-offs. However, against the background of GG they looked faded and "gladiators" won 2-0 without any problems.
At the end of the group stage Gaimin Gladiators took sole TOP-1. The three-time Major champions played with the score 7-1 on maps, losing only to Nigma Galaxy.
In the first play-offs match GG met TSM, and the result of the match was not what we expected. GG won, but won with a score of 2-1.
In the match to advance to the grand finals, GG met Team Secret. The match turned out to be a very one-calibre match, ending 2-0 in favour of GG.
Gaimin Gladiators won BB Dacha by defeating TSM in the grand finals. The match ended 3-1 in favour of Seleri and company.
On the first day of DreamLeague Season 21, GG played against Spirit and OG. Dragons on "class" ran over "gladiators" with a score of 2-0, as well as Ledge or OG map.

The most frequent pick was Rubick. The character has appeared in the GG pick 8 times and has an 87% win rate.
Next came Pangolier (6 matches, 83% wins), Doom (6 matches, 66% wins), Keeper of the Light (5 matches, 80% wins), Ember Spirit (5 matches, 80% wins).
We also took Ember Spirit (4 matches, 100% wins), Terrorblade (4 matches, 75% wins).
BB Team uniforms
Let's move on to the review of BB Team uniforms. In this match, they are slightly behind their vis-a-vis.
Bookmakers are fixing a symbolic gap for BB Team. The odds for their victory are at around 3.6.
This situation is easy to understand, looking at the performance of the teams for the first game day. Thus, BB Team won the series and got a draw.
In the first season of the regional league BB Team took the top 1, very confidently running over their main opponents Spirit and HR. However, this success was quickly overshadowed by their performance at Lima Major 2023, where BB failed to make it out of the group.
A few inconclusive events later, BB Team began play in the second division of the DPC. This time the situation changed dramatically, from top 1 to top 3, but on the international stage everything was stable: another failure to get out of the group at the Major e.
The third season of DPC was held under the slogan "it's time to get back", but somehow it didn't work out, something didn't go well and in the end - TOP-2. Again, kind of significant, but if we compare Western and Eastern Europe, TOP-2 in the first case is much more prestigious than BB's achievement.

BB Team's moment of glory was DreamLeague Season 20. Having got to the tournament quite by chance (they replaced Execration), the Eastern European residents managed to make it to the grand final of the tournament, where they beat Gladiators, but eventually lost with the score 2-3.
After a solid group stage at The Bali Major 2023 with a 4-2-2 from BB, Eastern European Resident made it to the top set of play-offs. There the team outplayed Tundra Esports, but due to a tournament rules violation that result was cancelled. As a result, Bali Major 2023 ended for BB Team in the top 12.
After the last Major tournament of the season BB Team attended a number of other events. Among them is the Riyadh Masters 2023. At the biggest commercial tournament of the season, BB Team made it to the top 6, which is pretty good.
In addition to the Riyadh Masters 2023 BB Team also made an appearance at the BB Dacha. The tournament from the main sponsor BB Club finished without having started: BB Team failed to get out of the group and as a result finished in the top 8.
In the first match of the tournament BB will play against Quest. To be honest, there can be no easy opponents here, and therefore in the match against Quest BB should take a card and at least a card.
During the first day of DreamLeague Season 21 BB Team managed to come out on top by a score of 3-1. They outplayed Quest and took the map from Team Spirit.
BB Team's most popular characters
The most used BB Team character remains Storm Spirit (5 matches, 60% wins). The team also plays with Primal Beast and Pugna at position 4, and both heroes have 4 matches and 100% wins each. In spades was Enchantress (4 matches, 25% wins), Beastmaster (4 games, 0% wins).
The teams have previously played each other at least 5 times during the season. The statistics are 3-2 in favour of BB.
Predicted result of the meeting BB Team - Gaimin Gladiators
In this match I expect a close game, which is hinted at by the odds and the performance of the teams after the first day. The most logical bet is +1.5 on BB.
Bottom line: +1.5 on BB Team.
BetBoom is the 6th team of the world ranking. In their region, the first round of DPC confidently finish in the 1st position. This is followed by the organisation's disastrous performance at Lima Major, where they take a disappointing 15th-16th place. The second round of DPC finishes in 3rd place, giving way to the leading places to HR and Spirit respectively. The team was not invited to Dreamleague. Berlin Major is also very sad, finishing in 13th-14th place. The team is not doing well at the lanes. After that they decided to change positions between Nightfall and Pure. In the 3rd round they take the 2nd place, passing only Spirit. The DreamLeague S20 is a great event, with a very hard fought 2nd place, losing in the finals to GG. Although I think they were stronger. Foolishly took only 9th-12th place at Bali Major when they should have reached the finals and maybe even won.
Gaimin Gladiators are the 1st team of the world ranking. DPC finish the first round on the 2nd place, passing Team Liquid in front of them. Lima Major finished in 1st place, confidently beating Liquid in the grand final 3:0, but at that time TL had a replacement. According to the same trend and in the second round of DPC GG cede the leading position to Liquid, passing in front of them and Tundra. 3rd place. A similar situation to the previous major catches up with us at Dreamleague, where in a tough grand final GG defeated Liquid with the score 3:2. The same situation awaited us at Berlin Major. Liquid GG Grand Final, from which GG came out victorious. The 3rd round DPC had a rest, but it didn't prevent them from taking the 2nd place at the end of it. DreamLeague S20 was no exception to the team's winning ways. They won the tournament. The traditions of Bali Major have not changed, where the team again takes the 1st place.
GG are not so invincible and their opponents on the first day make it clear. BB in turn start with a win and a draw. And still they are outsiders. I'll take their head-to-head.
I'm a prognosticator, I live only for this. I devote all my time to it. No other interests.
I have been doing this for quite a long time and have achieved some success in it. Whether to believe me or not is up to everyone. But why not give it a try? Maybe you like this kind of life!
Prediction: +1.5 BetBoom!
